Local food bank receives a special delivery
Kind hearted staff at Johnstone TOA were saddened to hear there had been a shortage of food being delivered to the local food bank. With this in mind they decided to take matters into their own hands and provide some of the areas most underprivileged people with much needed food supplies.
The idea for the food donation is the brainchild of Johnstone TOA’s general manager, Debbie Anderson.
Debbie 33, from Johnstone, said: "I'm a mum of three and it just breaks my heart to think local people, including young families, are so strapped for cash they they cannot afford to have a decent meal. We have over sixty people here at TOA and I decided we have to do our bit for the community, especially as there is a food distribution centre practically on our doorstep."
The busy taxi firm, which operates a free phone taxi service at Morrisons in Johnstone, have vowed to keep on delivering to Renfrewshire Foodbank's Warehouse in Abercorn Street, Paisley. The company will shortly be appealing to their customers through Social Media and Supermarket Bookings and hope to encourage customers to buy a few extra tins when shopping and hand them to their taxi driver.
